“This cake is moist and delicious especially when served warm with whipped cream. It is a very attractive cake. It looks and tastes as though you went to a lot of trouble, but it is really so easy and quick to throw together. Serve warm cake with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and a dollop of whipped topping.” - by Carlee

I made it exactly as the recipe indicated except I used milk chocolate chips on the top instead of shaved chocolate. ..." See moreThe cake was light yet moist and just delicious.

"More of a spice cake, than a pear flavor. This is by no means is a bad tasting cake and it is soft and moist, but I was hoping for more pear flavor and should have known better since the pears are jus..." See moret on top. I followed the recipe exactly."
